Okay, so you’re married.
Gone are the wine-and-dine dating days where you both are trying to win the other one over.
Just how do you keep the romance alive as you go about the day to day routine? Between dishes, laundry, and paying the mortgage, how are you going to keep that spark?
My husband and I have made it 10 years now, and I want to share with you how we are keeping the romance alive.
1. Have kids.
What husband doesn’t get turned on by hearing about the latest potty training issues, sitting on a half-eaten lollipop, or seeing a toy-littered living room?
2. Date Night.
Who needs candle light dinners and dancing? We’re talking dinner where you only need to worry about feeding yourself, not getting a couple wiggle-worms to eat. And then it’s off to the grocery store — where the romance continues beneath the florescent lights as you present a coupon for that athlete’s foot spray he’s looking for.
Buy the good stuff, and then put it somewhere safe.
No, you’re not hiding it… Just making sure it’s still around when you need it, say after the kids are in bed and you’re setting up to settle in with that hunk of burning love snoring under the covers.
You know the kind, the kind that says, “Come and get me, big boy.”
What guy can resist a short bathrobe covered in cartoon animals?
5. A sense of humor. Because when the only wine you two get to share is the kids whining at the closed door when you try to catch a moment alone, a sense of humor is what’s going to see you through.
